This indicator shows the potential for population change in the country. A rate of two children per woman is considered the replacement rate for a population, resulting in relative stability in terms.

The table also shows that American blacks had both higher fertility and higher mortality relative to the white population, although both groups experienced fertility and mortality transitions.

For example, both participated in the rise in birthrates after World War II known as the baby boom, as well as the subsequent resumption of birthrate. This means that progress shows up as a movement downwards toward lower mortality rates.
